Providing a great real estate opportunity, a great place for people to play, a great place for people to live comfortably, with great access to transportation and airports is all part of what brings companies here.

When a major corporation is looking to open a new headquarters, or a national training facility, or an expansive office complex, location weighs heavily on its decision. However, there are a host of other factors that corporations look to when deciding where to move.

For companies doing business in Lake Nona—the 17-square-mile master-planned community in Orlando, Florida—location is just one of the many corporate-friendly perks of the area.

“I do think that developers like Tavistock are understanding that looking at a community from that multi-facet lens is a plus for businesses,” said Bill Mooney, executive vice president of Global Workplace Solution, CBRE. “Providing a great real estate opportunity, a great place for people to play, a great place for people to live comfortably, with great access to transportation and airports is all part of what brings companies here.”
